This comic was inspired by a moment at the Tekko Formal Ball (run by my good friend Trickssi) when "Dragostea Din Tei" (colloquially known as the "Numa Numa Song") was played. It was late, and I was exhausted and physically sore from dancing all day, but I instantly felt like I was in college watching that video for the first time again. It was incredible.
I think this is a big part of why nostalgia exploitation has increased so much lately. An entire generation of nerds is looking for anything that will make them feel young again, just for a little bit. I understand the appeal, and, as my previous anecdote shows, I'm not immune to it. I do, however, find myself wishing for new content more often than the comforts of the familiar.
Rock on, guys, and never stop drawing.
